Virgin/bleeding problems

So, I tried using my size 1 Diva cup for the first time yesterday, ouch. I tried multiple times using the c-fold method and could not get it in! I stopped when I felt intense pain and started bleeding. I'm assuming that I broke my hymen, not a big deal. I used a mirror and it looked a little jagged down there. A few hours later I tried again using the punchdown method, got a whole lot closer! Even though there wasn't a lot of pain, the bleeding started again and wouldn't stop. I started my period today and towards the end of the day I used a slim tampon, no pain, but when it came out I started bleeding, yet again. I'm positive it wasn't menstrual blood, too thin and bright. Basically my question, is this much bleeding normal? Also, while I was investigating down there I realized just how small the hole I'm trying to shove this thing in is! I don't know if my cervix is just super low or something, because there just doesn't seem to be enough room. But I now remember it's a tight squeeze for me to use a "super" absorbency tampon. But if I'm going to eventually push a tiny human out surely there must be a way to use a stupid cup! I'm strongly considering trying Ladycup instead, it's quite a bit shorter and softer I've read. Suggestions??
